Truth be told, I love to indulge myself in old stuff from MC's past. I do it a lot, in fact. And the more I do it, the more it becomes plain to me this observation (maybe Ed was on the right track when he wanted me to observe things ): MC has lost much of its fun and creativity. Now, before I go any further here, I want to make this plain: I'm not trying to create any sort of "everything sucks" rant thread. I more so would like to see MC get back on track with where it once was in terms of this subject. You might call be a newbie, and someone who is standing out of their place by saying this, but personally, I feel like it's something that needs to be said. We're Muppet fans. I think that we should be able to grasp the concept of this. But for some reason, its seems that we can't do that on here. It seems that when we muffin, all it is is a bunch of sarcastic one liners aimed at other people in good fun. Even the crazy thread seems to be a bunch of adlkjsglk jargon. I used to think that this was great, until I started reading back. I started watching the forum's olden days, where people ran around throwing muffins at each other and putting jello down each other's pants. Creative muffining like this was actually encouraged and nurtured, yet now it seems like everyone runs around and points fingers at people who do that, to the point where it has become a federal crime. Sure, there is a lot of creative output around, which is evident in our fan fiction, games, and art. But overall, I feel like the forum is lacking the crazy, good fun that it once had. I don't know about you, but I'd much rather have a muffining where we run around and throw boomerang fish than one where we have a dreary talk about playground equipment, and then complain about the non-durablity of it. The Muppets are the most prime examples of crazy fun, yet all we seem to do is run around and complain about things and yell at people. When the Muppets have a problem, they throw a few chickens up in the air and yell "Halleluiah for life!" rather than having a debate about the most miniscule issue. Shouldn't we be carrying on where the old-timers left off and continue the Muppet legacy? Of all things, in the olden days, thread hijacking was renamed "muffining." Yet for some reason I feel that if the current community was left to name thread hijacking, we would name it some stupid thing like thrijacking. I feel like the creativity valves are shut on this forum. This whole forum feels like it's been turned into one big serious place where we discuss politics and 90s cartoons. There doesn't seem to be much room for fun anymore. Too much of real life seems to have soaked in and cleaned up all the craziness that once occupied this URL. What happened to that? Aren't we, as Muppet fans, supposed to be putting ourselves in weird situations and throwing things at each other? This feels like I'm just reiterating the MC Revival over, but I personally would like it if we could start throwing muffins again! Start running around throwing pillows at each other and shooting cannons at each other and stealing Muppet artifacts and playing the saxophone on a tightrope while wearing a tutu and putting a creme pie in someone's face and balancing spoons on our noses and throwing penguins at each other! Now I'm sure people will call me a ranter and a liar and someone bringing negativity to the forum and a person who has no rights to speak and I feel confident that someone is going to spank me like a bad, bad donkey. But I don't know about you, but I'd much rather play ping-pong in Groucho Marx glasses than discuss the political correctness of an 80s movie. In short, I miss the craziness I never knew.
